My guest today is Dr. Sara DeFrancesco ND, LAc . A holistic, root cause Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist, and the founder of Thriving Force – an investigative medicine clinic that specializes in digestive, immune, and brain health problems.
She helps people turn their brain and health back on by healing root cause metabolic problems (like overlooked inflammatory triggers, stealth infections, and nutritional deficiencies) combined with holistic neuroscience so you can heal the cause of what is preventing you from being well.
Tune into today’s #HYNwellnesspodcast #14 and learn about Chronic Gut Infections, parasites, yeast, mold and how they are all linked to different health conditions– including mental health.
Dr. DeFrancesco shares with us, how she uses the synergy of holistic medicine, functional medicine testing, neuroscience, and mind-body medicine and partners with her patients to heal digestive problems, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, brain fog, memory problems, and autoimmune-neurological conditions. I think you’ll be happy to learn as much as I did – Enjoy the show!
